Open the window that contains the file(s) you want to move.
Open a window on the drive you want to move the file(s) to.
Right Click and drag the file from the one window to the other.
Release the mouse and choose, COPY here.
If the unthinkable happens, the power fails at your house, then nothing, apart from the COPY of the original, is lost.
Once the copy has been completed, and you know that you can open the copied file, delete the original.
Using Cut and Paste, and the power fails, you have lost the original.
Power failure is just one of the things that can fail. The list is long.
